BLANTYRE--Malawi Police are yet to any arrests of individuals named in the Robert Chasowa Commission of Inquiry report,
saying they're probing them, a week after the findings were officially presented to Pres Joyce Banda.
Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Bruno Kalemba says prosecution of the named suspects will start following recommendations from the Commission of Inquiry to speed up investigations and prosecution of the suspects.
Chasowa was a polytechnic student political activist who died mysteriously and his body was found on a pavement of his college campus.
Police quickly issued a statement that the student committed suicide, a claim that later transpired to have been conceived by both the police and people connected to ruling Democratic Progressive Party.
The commission of inquiry established that Chasowa was murdered with Pres Banda promising full prosecution of all named suspects.
The report implicates Democratic Progressive Party-DPP Southern Region Governor Mr. Noel Masangwi, the party’s Director for Youth Lewis Ngalande, boxing promoter Mike Chitenje.
Others are police officers Stanford Horea, and Sub-Inspector Yuda, a Mr. Amos, Geoffrey Botoman, Sam Chulu, Stoni John, Frank Julius, Harry Makina, Chikondi Mwamvera, Isaac Osman, Elias Phiri and Petros Phiri among the 15 suspects in the murder.
Police will determine whether to charge all the 15 suspects with murder.
“After the police have completed their investigations, they will hand over the docket of the names of suspects to me. I will look at each one has a case to answer or not,” said chief state prosecutor Kalemba.
